    if I may I correct?
    Я забы́ла свой сви́тер в маши́не. = I forgot your sweater in the car.

    • Learn Russian Daily says:

      Hi Antonino,

      “Свой” in this case refers to the pronoun I. So it’s “my sweater”.

      If I say “ты забыл свой свитер”, this would mean “you forgot your sweater”. “Он забыл свой свитер” = “he forgot his sweater”.

      If I need to say “I forgot your sweater”, I say “я забыла твой свитер”.
